Default Speaker issue

Hi guys,
The Boomsound speakers on my One are a HUGE disappointment. My Galaxy Y ($99) can produce louder sound than my HTC One. I was really looking forward to the speakers, so im quite disappointed. Is this normal?? Or are the speakers really that bad ??

The speakers volume got nerfed with an ota update long time ago because of to many blown speakers to repair under warranty. That is probably why you are disappointed. I remember when my phone was on the old sf version, they were amazing.

There are some mods you could try to boost the speakers sound, never tried them personally.

Thanks for the help. But im on InsertCoin Sixth Sense. So, this OTA patch is part of the custom ROMs as well? Or is it only the stock rom which is patched ?

On the AROMA installer for IC there is an option for 'speaker boost'. Not sure of the exact wording. Have you tried that option?

Pretty much. Still cant figure how Samsungs's lowest end 2011 model can even compete with the One, let alone beat it in one of the One's most touted features. Sad

My speakers are pretty darn loud. Of course I've only had this M7 for about a month so I really can't compare 'before and after'.

I had the same issue with my speakers, turned out that the grills were full of dirt that wasn't visible. I just got a fine paint brush and sort of stabbed the grills so the brush could poke through the tiny holes. 2 minutes of doing that and my One was 3 times louder lol... Hope this helps

Np man
I'm sure it's a problem with many HTC One's. I didn't even notice a decrease in volume until I noticed that one was louder than the other. Then once I cleaned both of them I was like "Holy Shizz"
